FUNCHICO = Fun, Chic & Cool!

This is Dirty Boxes’ first new release from the “Rockstar Princess” skybox. The original laptop was hotpink to match the decor of the bedroom. These however not only have a variety of colors but new skins on the back, with all sorts of fun designs that’s sure to appeal to a variety of customers.

Each laptop has a total of 6 quality animations within (3ea. for girls & guys), with a screen that changes textures about every minute. Buyers can use the textures and pics that already come loaded in the piece, or they can add their own pics and screenshots of friends, favorite websites, etc.

Bonus Tray & Food w/Purchase

As a bonus, a “Sweets Delight” tray comes along with the piece that includes a cup of steaming coffee, a cupcake and doughnut. It’s adorable and can be placed next to your laptop for realism, on a kitchen counter, or anywhere you’d like to add a little tasty fun ๐Ÿ™‚

With all of the colors and designs, there are a total of 40 Funchico Laptops in all! Yes, yes, we know…we were a little excessive but that only means that there are more colors and styles for you to choose from. Of course they couldn’t all be featured here in our blog, but you can check them out on the Second Life Marketplace or in world at the Dirty Boxes store. When visiting Marketplace, you can either navigate to all the styles at the bottom of the screen under ‘related items’ or you can look through the recent items uploaded to the -db- Marketplace store. In world, a holoVendor has been placed near the front entrance for your convenience. You can not only look through the laptops, but you can rez each one to examine it before purchase. If you’d like to see it in a home environment, be sure to rez the “Rockstar Princess” skybox and use the teleporter. There you can play with its animations as they were intended.

Hotpink Funchico Laptop in "Rockstar Princess" Skybox

It’s finally done. I know I took forever and a day, but I think it was worth it! This is for all the ladies out there that begged for a hotpink skybox…you definitely got your wish ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmm, where do I start? Well, this box is basically a playground for ladies (& bois) that love fun, color, & attention to detail. It’s based off of a teen bedroom that I saw in real life and decided that I had to bring it to Second Life. It’s filled with cute animations that will most certainly make you smile. I won’t go into great detail about every little feature of this box.ย  What I will do is share some pics that I had fun taking in this bedroom.ย  If you’d like a run down of what it offers, visit the SL Marketplace where you can get more details and even purchase it if you’re inclined.


If you need a place to hang out with a girlfriend, or would like a place that’s great for taking playful pics, this box is perfect for you. There are gossip and friendship animations on the window seat that are great for sharing secrets ๐Ÿ™‚

What a great closet and use of space, eh?ย  This closet would appeal to anyone with diva tendencies or who secretly wants to be a primping princess!

The zebra textured stool contains dainty vanity animations.ย  A brush on the table contains props that a young miss can hold during animations.ย  Our model in the above pic is holding a jar of face cream that looks realistic!

Theย  “Besta Bed” & “Funchico Laptop” are full of enough single animations to keep a single girl busy! There are 6 animations in the laptop, three for girls and three for guys. Try them out and discover which ones you like the best ๐Ÿ™‚

A cell phone on the desk plays a little song when touched. In addition, it gives the owner a cell phone in their inventory that they can hold during the phone animation.


And don’t worry, didn’t forget you ladies that want to snuggle with your main squeeze. The window seat has a cuddle pose but the bed most importantly has cuddle & make out animations. The bed is modify for those of you that would like your own animations within the bed.

There’s a fun feature with the Rockstar Guitar. The guitar against the wall in the box allows you to do an air guitar animation and gives the owner a guitar in their inventory when touched. The Guitar Chair not only gives you a guitar to wear during the animation, but the chair supports up to 2 additional avatars to sit around the chair and watch while another avatar plays a guitar. Touching the guitar plays a little tune as well.
If you’d like to see this skybox in world to test and play with its features, visit the -db- store. The boxes are located within vendors at each end of the store that can be rezzed for your convenience.

It’s great to see Dirty Boxes being used for one of the things that it was created for, the Role-playing community within Second Life.

Fashion Blogger and Second Life photographer, Bouncer Criss, is the creator and owner of a fashion blog with a twist, Pixel Phasion 4 Men. Not only does he take beautiful and detailed photos of custom content in world and show it off to residents via his blog, but he also does it while adding a fictional storyline with it as well!

This week, Bouncer’s blog featured the final chapter to an ongoing story regarding the infamous “Jason” from the Friday the 13th series, versus Bouncer himself! One of the products highlighted in his blog was Dirty Boxes’ very own “Dirty Ass Kitchen Set” from the “Effed Up Basement” Collection.


This set is perfect for anyone within the RP community looking to create a scene, or for someone into heavy grunge. It includes countertops, fridge, stove, dishwasher and sink. It has objects with animations and sound that residents can interact with. To top it all off, it includes tiny accessories that add realism such as food, garbage bin with trash, and even “Squeaky the Mouse” that’s perched on the sink. Buyers can click him to make him squeak! ๐Ÿ™‚

-DB- would like to give a special thanks to Bouncer for his lovely pic and props to our new establishment. Be sure to check out some of his older entries, they’re really interesting, especially “Toushie Tuesdays!”

On a Side Note: The above pic was actually shot in another one of our skyboxes called “Dirty Boyz Locker Room.” We love the cutsie toushy Bouncer! If you guys wanna see this pic uncensored, check Bouncer’s Flickr stream ๐Ÿ™‚


The Glamour Girl Skybox from DIRTY BOXES was used for promo pics at the SLingerie Blog. Thanks to blog contributor Sabella Fallen!


After seeing this skybox, a friend asked me what made me create such a nasty hole in the wall. Believe it or not, I used to role play with a guy who shall remain nameless, that told me he lived in his parents basement while playing video games and gaming in Second Life. In my mind, I always imagined him in a place like this, so I decided to create it! ๐Ÿ™‚

This box was created with the roleplayer in mind, with attention to detail. There’s lots for the user to interact with…working lights, sounds, animations for appliances and furniture…even running water and a working microwave!
I tried to be mindful of prims, but I didn’t want to be stingy with the build.


This basement is the epitome of grunge. It’s the largest build that I’ve done so far with four fully furnished rooms. The box has a realistic feel, with filthy wall and floor textures, you can almost smell the mold and feel the dankness in the air.

As great as this box is, there will always be some that don’t want the entire box, but like individual pieces from the box. With that in mind, there are sets and pieces available to buyers on the Second Life Marketplace.

There’s only so much that pictures can show and trust me, there’s much more to see. Visit the Second Life Marketplace for more pics and details about the skybox, or even make a trip in world to DIRTY BOXES to see the box in person. It is conveniently located at the front entrance of the store. Use the teleporter underneath the promo pic to transport yourself into a world of pure grunge ๐Ÿ™‚ Squeaky the Mouse says, “It’s well worth the visit!”

This grungy hangout is a perfect compliment to the FREE Homeless Box from -db- and is great for anyone looking to have a little fun with their friends.

I created this with more than just a couple of poses because I often see Fire Barrels in world, and most of them are just for a couple of people. Testing this with my friends, I found out you can get at least seven people on this hangout piece at once! I can just see it now, a bunch of SLFers role playing as bums, hanging out around the old barrel talking about the good old times.

There are eight animations all together, six for singles and one couple pose. You can either roast marshmallows around the fire

or use my personal favorite, THE RATS! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Yes, I know, but don’t ask!

Go to the back alley of the DIRTY BOXES store in world to see it up close and play with for awhile.
Visit the Second Life Marketplace to purchase.

So, do you like it?

I’m giving this homeless box away as a promotional gift, hoping it will bring more attention to -db- ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, again with the grunge, I know, but it’s what I’m feeling right now.

I looked at other cardboard boxes for the homeless in Second Life before making this one, and what I noticed was that no one really made anything that you’d actually -want- to hang out in. My goal was to make something affordable, cute enough for girls but manly enough for guys, and definitely something that could be used in the Role Playing community.

It comes with a grungy mattress with unisex poses

a candle to light your way during the darkest hours that actually gives off light and that you can turn on/off

…and a little mouse that squeaks when you touch him. Hope you guys enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

So as I’ve said before, often times I create things based on what I’ve seen in my first life. This classroom was a memory of my third grade class! It then makes it a little humorous that I added a bit of naughtiness to the decor. ๐Ÿ™‚

The classroom has a health theme with posters on the wall dealing in matters such as nutrition, bullies, and of course, sex. Some of the wall art definitely makes one chuckle at it’s take on teen sexuality but believe it or not, some of it is actually educational. I could have made it even more risque than it already is, but for me, it wasn’t about complete and utter sleaze as we often see in Second Life. I wanted it to be tasteful but still fun and entertaining. It’s made in a way that allows the buyer to add or delete to the entire theme as they see fit. Posters can be removed, and chalk boards can be made blank so that users can make their own theme if they’d like.

Have you ever been in a real life class room setting and seen some of the ceiling lights that have been blown out long ago? Well this room has that same feel. If you glance up at the ceiling, you’ll notice how some lights shine bright and others are completely non-existent.

The lights also have a color changing menu that allows you to select the color of the lighting you’ll use. So if you’re in a teaching mode, you can select a normal soft tone, or if you’re in a romantic mood, change it to a racy red if you’re feeling daring.

The student desks have male, female and unisex animations to give the user some variety. The teacher’s desk is basic, traditional, with an apple thrown in for good measure ๐Ÿ™‚ You can either sit on or at the desk, or even lie on it if you are so inclined.

In all, the skybox is playful, definitely affordable, and can be used for an array of things. Check it out in world at DIRTY BOXES. Be sure to rez the “Health Class” skybox from one of our vendors and use the transporter nearby to teleport to it. Easy as 1, 2, 3! ๐Ÿ™‚
